I seem to be on a run of Vampire books at the moment and this one did not disappoint!
Title: Vampire Prince
Author: SJ Frost
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars
From the Publisher:
For three years, Sebastian has lived as a blood slave, giving his blood and body to vampires. He’s a prisoner, owned by the blood house he serves. Sebastian dreams of freedom, of feeling the sun and wind on his face once again.
Valentin has earned the title of vampire prince. But status and age haven’t brought him love. When his blood craving grows too demanding to be ignored, he goes to the blood house and finds himself entranced by the spirited Sebastian.
Their passion is strong, their connection to each other undeniable. Sebastian wants to be Valentin’s, and Valentin wants to keep Sebastian—forever. The danger of making the blood slave immortal is high and the price might be both their lives.
Inside Scoop: Valentin and Sebastian sate every male/male lust they can!
A Romantica® male/male erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
When Sebastian is kicked out of his home with barely the clothes on his back by his bigoted parents his life just carries on going downhill. Picked up off the streets and offered food and shelter leads him into signing away his life for the next 3 years. He has signed an unending contract as a blood slave and now his life revolves around staying healthy enough to feed vampires.
In his time at the blood house he has been beaten and abused but still manages to cling to a small part of his old self. He dreams of being able to go outside once more to see the sun and the stars but is enough of a realist to understand the only way he will leave will be through death. His defiance has kept him alive so far but even that has its limits.
Valentin is a centuries old vampire and has earned the title of Prince. He prefers to hunt rather than use blood houses but as he has just relocated he makes an exception. That decision will change his life and start mending his heart. A century ago he gave his heart to a blood slave who used him for what he could get and then left him alone. He is now cold and cautious when it comes to other humans.
This changes almost the moment he sets eyes on Sebastian. He is completely taken with his beauty and calm strength. The pair seem almost drawn to each other and Valentin is the first of his kind to show Sebastian any kindness. As hard as the young blood slave fights the attraction Valentin breaks down his walls. He asks for his opinion and listens to his answers and shows Sebastian respect, something no vampire has done in all his time there. The Vampire returns night after night and suddenly Sebastian has allowed himself to start dreaming of freedom and a life with his handsome Vampire. Even if it can never happen the hope alone soothes his soul.
When Wesley the tyrannical housemaster feels that Sebastian has been spoiled and is receiving preferential treatment from the Prince he brings in a vampire brute to teach him a lesson. As this lesson is being taught Valentin arrives and saves Sebastians life.
If Valentin can help Sebastian out of the blood house what will become of his life?
Loved the characters in this and that both the MC’s were so wary of trusting their hearts for such different reasons. Sebastians resilience was amazing! I have my fingers crossed for a sequel….surely there is someone out there that could love a demon 🙂
